In light of COVID-19 and previous outbreaks of other zoonotic diseases that pass between animals and humans (Examples: SARS, MERS, HIV Aids, Ebola, Zika etc), leaders at the recent June 11-13, 2021 G7 Summit in Cornwall, England endorsed “strengthening a ‘One Health’ approach across all aspects of pandemic prevention and preparedness.”
There is an emerging need for a better understanding of what One Health is all about. The One Health Commission and The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, in partnership with the Wilson Center and the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History, are collaborating to host a public educational webinar series that will answer the questions:
What do I need to know about One Health?
Why do I need to know it? Why is it so important?
And what can I do about it?”
